Rock Solid Warrior: Senior Airman Danika Wynn

The January Rock Solid Warrior is Senior Airman Danika Wynn, a 386th Expeditionary Operations Group administrator, deployed from the 355th Component Maintenance Squadron at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base.

SOUTHWEST ASIA – I’m Senior Airman Danika Wynn, a 386th Expeditionary Operations Group administrator. I am deployed from the 355th Component Maintenance Squadron at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Ariz. I joined the Air Force to surpass my father’s retired rank of technical sergeant; I would say I’m on the right track now.

My job includes gathering documents for members’ travel, whether re-deploying or taking emergency leave. As a mail clerk I gather and sort mail, which I would say helps boost morale. My job is different here because I’m working at the group level as opposed to the squadron level. Normally my job doesn’t take me outside of my office, but working here I was able to check out other offices and work with members face to face. This deployment was also unique because I had the opportunity to help members downrange receive care packages from home during the holidays.

This was my first deployment so I learned quite a few programs for the very first time. At first it was nerve rattling, but members in other squadrons were more than willing to help me out, which was greatly appreciated.

One of my professional goals is to continue working on my Community College of the Air Force degree so that I may have it before the year ends. My personal goal is to work with juveniles in detention centers.

Some of my hobbies include fishing, hiking, reading, video games, and cooking.
